Owner description: The Cayuga Museum campus operates in three buildings: the mansion, the Case Research Laboratory, and the Carriage House Theater. The mansion is home to several changing exhibits each year as well as a permanent exhibit about Auburn Correctional Facility. The Case Research Laboratory is the home of talking movies, where Theodore Case invented the first commercially successful system of sound on film, which visitors can now explore on a guided tour to learn about the history of sound film. The Carriage House Theater is a recently renovated multi-purpose space used for museum and community events. Our mission is to provide a forum for the public to realize, interact with and appreciate Cayuga County’s shared past and unfolding present to help shape a better future.

Museum beautiful. Lots of history to peruse. Want to come again during regular business hours. Prison exhibit and medical exhibits awesome. The photography exhibit was very informative and was my favorite. Nice museum.

This museum has some interesting exhibits. The Case museum is interesting. The display about the prison very informative. Other than that? Not so much.
